Japan is mad about baseball! And the Tokyo Dome, also known as the “big egg”, is home to their “Giants” baseball team. Located in the Bunkyo district, the 55,000-seat sports venue also hosts concerts, monster truck rallies and races, martial arts competitions and demonstrations, American football matches, basketball games and numerous other forms of sports and entertainment.

The Tokyo Dome sports (pun intended!) an air-supported roof, so weather is not a factor. It was built in 1988 on the location of the former stadium, but bigger and better. The facility is home to Japan’s Baseball Hall of Fame.

The immediate area is known as Tokyo Dome City, and boasts a wide variety of restaurants, hotels and shopping. Hotels are booked to capacity on game nights, so make your reservations early and go cheer for the “other” Giants, not those large fellows from New York!.
